Dr Broadhouse is an early career Magnetic Resonance (MR) physicist specialising in the translation of multimodal imaging to clinical application. She has extensive experience in complex, data driven, statistical analyses to investigate MR measures in a range of clinical disorders. Kathryn completed her PhD implementing cardiac MRI in neonates to investigate the haemodynamic impact premature cardiovasculature in 2013 at Imperial College London. She then moved to Australia and joined the Heart Research Institute (HRI) as a postdoctoral researcher. During this time, she carried out numerous research projects from characterisation of haemodynamics in congenital heart defects to neuroimaging biomarkers for remission in depression. She then moved to the Regenerative Neuroscience Group (RNG) at the Brain and Mind Centre, (USyd 2016-2017) to lead the imaging arm of the group with the focus to implement neuroimaging to investigate the efficacy of interventions for Alzheimer’s disease. In February 2018 she joined the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience Thompson Institute as a Senior Research Fellow, where she now leads the Nola Thompson Centre for Advanced Imaging which utilises multimodal imaging to investigate ageing, youth mental health, adolescent brain development and clinical trials.

- Neuroimaging PhD scholarship – this project will employ cutting-edge neuroimaging methods (EEG, MRI, DTI, MRS fMRI) combined with quantitative, data driven modelling and analyses for functional and structural connectivity characterization, biomarker profiling and explicating mechanisms that underpin psychiatric conditions.
